Greg and Crew exceeded all our expectations for our wedding this summer. They learned a few song requests for us, but their set list had plenty to pick from already. They played our ceremony and reception and easily adapted to match the tone of the moment. Easy to get a hold of and all around pleasant people. My only regret is not booking them longer into the night!

If you are a retirement community that is reading this because you are unsure about their music or genre, I will tell you that they are fantastic! They either had our residents (age ranges from 60-90's) on their feet dancing or swaying and dancing in their seats. Our residents loved them and we will definitely have them back!

The Tropics played at our Realtor Holiday party and they were a huge hit! Friendly, professional, talented, and intuitive to the audience! There was no awkward pause when it came to people on the dance floor - people were out dancing on the first song - the band is so good they kept our crew dancing until the end. They play an amazing variety of songs that everyone can relate to. We had members ranging in age from 22-80 and everyone loved the music. We will definitely have them back at our next function! Greg was an excellent communicator before the event and everything fell into place perfectly!
